Bates Safety Enforcer Side Zip Insulated Steel Toe Work Boots for Men
The worst cut steel toe I have ever had
First of all, I have always been a size 9 in bates boots. So, I puschased these boots in a size 9. The boots were excessively too large. also, the 9's were not properly manufactured. The left boot was improperly stiched and warped. So, I had to exchange them for a 8.5. The 8.5 fits perfectly except for the fact that the steel plate on both the left and right boots is cut a half size narrower than the boot cut which causes the outer edge of the plate to grind on the fourth toe and pinky toe of each foot. Other than these issues the boots are a great fit. But I work in EMS I am driving an ambulance and on my feet 95% of my day wearing these boots. I would not recommend getting these boots unless you plan on having to exchange them a few times unless you try them on in store and purchase the instore pair. They start out feeling good but once you actually use these boots for more than an hour their flaws become immediately evident.

best overall boots
I love these boots first pair I got 12 years ago in the military and they were like wearing tennis shoes. After I wore out insole I just got a pair of gel insoles and boots are still kicking. I got another pair cause the old ones are finally starting to look their age.
